Hello guys, I encounter a problem with updating field value without submit button. Due to buisness requirements I have to add visualforcepage onto CustomObject layout for one of its recordtypes. Page has checkbox which must be updated directly from page (I know that I can put this field on the layout, but visibility logic is quite complicated so it is way easier to drive visibility from ApexLevel). The problem is I can not add  submit buton, and it has to be updated on change.

This is my page & controller:
public class RemoteObjectExtension {
    public ApexPages.Standardcontroller standardController;
    public RemoteObject__c contextObject {get;set;}
    public boolean valueOfCheckbox {get;set;}
    public RemoteObjectExtension( ApexPages.StandardController controller ){
        this.standardController = controller;
        this.contextObject = (RemoteObject__c)standardController.getRecord();
    public void updateRemoteObject(){
        system.debug( logginglevel.info , ' Value from VFP: ' + this.valueOfCheckbox );

<apex:page standardController="RemoteObject__c" extensions="RemoteObjectExtension">
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
            <div id="wrapper">
                    <apex:outputLabel value="{!$ObjectType.RemoteObject__c.fields.Faulty__c.Label}"/>
                    <apex:inputField id="faultyChbx" value="{!RemoteObject__c.Faulty__c}" onChange="updateRemoteObject()"/>
                    <apex:actionFunction action="{!updateRemoteObject}" reRender="wrapper" name="updateRemoteObject">
                        <apex:param name="valueOfCheckbox" assignTo="{!valueOfCheckbox}" value="{!RemoteObject__c.Faulty__c}"></apex:param>

but problem is I can not see changes in debug logs. I know that it might be caused by a fact that I am taking value from CustomObject, and I've tried approach with document.getelementbyid('ID').value but it also does not work. Any ideas?
